  1. Hotep,

    I have a few questions. First, are there any tours that showCase the Afrikan Presence in Europe? Second, is the new book available for purchase? I have more questions, but I’ll patently await your reply. Medasi.

    • Greetings Will Chandler. Well, Dr. Rashidi conducts such tours; however he has not scheduled such a tour this year, and the 2021 schedule is yet to be planned. I’m certain there are other tours that showcase the African Presence in Europe; however this website keeps track only of Dr. Rashidi’s tours. I would recommend you continue to check back to this site, as his new tours are posted as they become available. Thank you!

  2. Is there other ways of purchasing Dr. Runoko books, since I am not connected with the PalPal?

    • Greetings Imgi. Yes there is: You can email Dr. Rashidi at and let him know which book you wish to purchase. You will need to provide your mailing address and he will respond with the cost to include taxes and shipping costs. Once he’s confirmed you’ve paid then your book will be shipped. I hope this answers your question.

  3. There is no link to purchase the book Black and Beautiful in Ancient World. Is just going to PayPal and sending you $28 the actual method?

    • Greetings Willie Johnson. If you don’t have PayPal, then you can pay through Dr. Rashidi’s GoFundMe ( If you use GoFundMe then you MUST leave a comment as follows: 1) make your comment “PRIVATE” 2) indicate what you are purchasing (the exact name of the item or book) and 3) leave your mailing address. NOTE: when you make your comment private, no one will see your comment, only the administrator (me). If you are still uncomfortable leaving your comment on GoFundMe, then just make your GoFundMe purchase amount, then email Dr. Rashidi directly ( with your name, the item you purchased, and your mailing address. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  4. It is not clear how I can purchase “Black and Beautiful In the Ancient World”

    Some direction and I will purchase the book.
